Accreditation Programs

Study a TRU program at a partner institution

TRU works with the accredited institutions to deliver our programs in the the partners' home countries.

There are currently more than 1,300 students enrolled in TRU programs delivered at partner institutions overseas, including in China, Iceland and India. Current programming areas include Business, Computing Science, and Tourism Management.


In addition to the curriculum review and accreditation that normally provides the basis for such agreements, TRU may collaborate with the partner-institution to adapt curriculum for delivery outside of Canada and/or may send TRU faculty to assist with program delivery, staffing training, or curriculum development.

Partner-institutions also send their faculty to the TRU campus in Canada, and joint research and scholarly exchange is an important feature of these joint programs.
